In that broad brush vague Marvel Universe sense there's always 'the war' whatever it was. If that put him in the Middle East rather than South East Asia, I think that matters less for the purposes of the Marvel Universe.
He also clarified that the retcon was only for the character in the main Marvel universe and not for the version in the MAX Comics, that retained the first origin.
The Punisher is the recipient of intense infantry training from the United States Marine Corps and special operations training by Force Recon.
From this training, the Punisher is proficient in not only basic infantry and special operations skills, but the use and maintenance of specialized firearms, equipment, and explosive ordnance.
He is highly trained in infiltration into heavily guarded enemy territories and structures for the purpose of assassination, capture, and military intelligence.
He is also highly adept at hand-to-hand combat , and has been trained in multiple forms of martial arts such as Chin Na ,  Hwa Rang Do ,  Krav Maga ,  Muay Thai ,  Nash Ryu Jujutsu ,  Ninjutsu , Shorin-ryu Karate  and Systema.
He maintains multiple safehouses and vehicles around the greater New York City area as well as multiple forged identities and bank accounts most of the funds and equipment aiding him in his work being taken from the criminals he hunts.
The Punisher has a Kevlar uniform which protects him from most gunfire, though he can still suffer concussive injury or penetration from sufficient or repeated impacts.
The white skull emblem on his chest is used both to intimidate his enemies and to lure their fire to the more heavily protected area of his armor.
The design was supposedly taken from either a Vietcong sniper ,  or the demon Olivier. Though he has a preference for guns, the Punisher has been using technology derived from super-villains and other costumed characters, such as the Green Goblin 's pumpkin bombs,  a modified Goblin Glider ,  and a Doctor Octopus tentacle that he can shrink down for easy storage via Pym Particles.
Aside from his physical prowess, the Punisher demonstrates intensive focus and mental discipline, providing a strong resistance against psychic and telepathic powers that are used against him.
When Letha and Lascivious try to manipulate his aggression, for example, he scoffs at their attempt, saying, "It doesn't feel different from any other day".
The Punisher was named the 19th Greatest Comic Book Character of All Time by movie magazine Empire , saying that he is the "grimmest and most compelling of characters" and praising the Punisher MAX series.
Frank Castle has spent years exacting vengeance for the deaths of his family by punishing criminals everywhere. His skull insignia inspires fear throughout the underworld.
But Punisher's appeal rests on more than his ability to do what the rest of Marvel's heroes won't. He's a tragic figure — even a profoundly selfish one in some ways.
The sad truth is that Frank Castle can't survive without killing, and his new job fulfills him in ways his family never could.
He is ranked 39 in Wizard Magazine ' s Top Comic Book Characters. IGN later listed the Punisher series 15 in their 25 Best Comic Runs of the Decade, praising Garth Ennis 's ten-year timeline of the character.
Despite wanting to work alone, the Punisher has a few supporting characters to help fight crime. Microchip assisted Castle by building and supplying weapons and technology and providing friendship.
During the "Civil War", he was aided by Stuart Clarke for a short time. Various police officers and detectives have assisted the Punisher, most notably Lynn Michaels and Lt.
Martin Soap. Lynn Michaels was a police officer who teamed up with Castle to take down a serial rapist and later quit the force to become a vigilante.
Martin Soap was secretly allied with the Punisher and gave him information on his targets from the police database. The Punisher's skull first became noticeably visible as a symbol during the Iraq War by US military personnel.
Service members would use the skull as an unofficial service patch or paint it on equipment. This was most notably done by Navy SEALs of SEAL Team 3 during the Second Battle of Fallujah in We spray-painted it on every building or wall we could, We wanted people to know, We're here and we want to fuck with you.
In addition to being used by the United States military and police, the Punisher's skull emblem is used by far right anti-government militias, such as the 3 Percenters a group dating back to , and the symbol was seen at the Unite the Right rally.
Since , the skull emblem became popular within police officers' Blue Lives Matter movement, with many companies producing decals , stickers, and T-shirts featuring the Punisher emblem colored with the thin blue line , or atop an American flag.
In , the Catlettsburg Police department in Kentucky faced a public backlash after installing large decals with the Punisher's skull and "Blue Lives Matter" on the hoods of police cars, and removed the decals in response to public pressure.
That didn't cross my mind. Punisher co-creator Gerry Conway has decried the use of the Punisher symbol by law enforcement, saying, "To me, it's disturbing whenever I see authority figures embracing Punisher iconography because the Punisher represents a failure of the Justice system.
The vigilante anti-hero is fundamentally a critique of the justice system, an example of social failure, so when cops put the Punisher's skulls on their cars or members of the military wear Punisher's skull patches, they're basically siding with an enemy of the system.
This controversy was addressed in Punisher Vol. In the issue, Frank comes across two police officers who are fans of his. They take a selfie with him and show they have a sticker of his logo on their car before comparing their work to his.
Unimpressed, the Punisher tears up the sticker and tells them, "I'll say this once, we're not the same. You took an oath to uphold the law.
You help people. I gave that up a long time ago. You don't do what I do. Nobody does. You boys need a role model? His name's Captain America, and he'd be happy to have you If I find out you are trying to do what I do, I'll come for you next.
From the early s, the Punisher rapidly gained popularity in Iraq. By , his logo had become widely used by the Iraqi Armed Forces and Iraqi paramilitary groups.
According to researcher Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi , many Iraqis just thought that the logo was "cool" despite the widespread anti-Americanism in the country.
The Marvel universe follows the story of Public Eye police officer, Jake Gallows , after the murder of his mother, brother and sister-in-law.
Gallows comes across Frank Castle's war journal in the Public Eye archives, and took the mantle as the new Punisher. At first he follows Frank's old code of justice, only killing those who hurt the innocent.
He later loses his mind, at one point proposing murdering two people simply because they were having sex with each other.
He is later named Minister of Punishment in Doctor Doom's government. Marvel Knights ' Punisher , another take on the year , featured Cassondra Castle who goes by the alias of Cossandra Natchios.
She is the daughter of Frank Castle and Elektra Natchios and has a son named Franklin. When she is diagnosed with cancer, Cossandra sets out to teach her son everything he needs to know to become the next Punisher.
Upon her death, Franklin chooses not to take over, allowing the Punisher title to end with his mother. In Amalgam Comics , the Punisher is merged with Steve Trevor to make Trevor Castle.
In this continuity Trevor Castle lost his family when they were caught in a gang war, which led him to become the Punisher and eventually marry Diana Prince , with whom he had a son named Ryan before they separated.
In Bullets and Bracelets , Ryan is kidnapped which leads to Trevor and Diana to work together to figure out who is responsible.
Their search leads them to Thanoseid, who apparently kills their son. Trevor was about to kill Thanosied's personal assassin Kanto , but was stopped by Diana who figured out Kanto was actually Ryan.
Wanting revenge on Trevor for indirectly causing the death of his own son, Thanoseid sent Ryan back in time to become Kanto so that either Trevor will kill his son or Kanto would kill his father.
With his plan foiled, he sent Trevor and Diana back to Earth, with the two deciding to give their relationship another chance.
Alternative versions of the Punisher have appeared for over three decades. The earliest examples of those alternative versions can be found within the monthly What If series.
Using existing Marvel stories as a starting point, the series examined scenarios in which, for example, Frank Castle's family has not died or he had killed Daredevil in their first encounter.
Other "what if" stories looked at his adventures as a new Captain America or as an agent of S. Garth Ennis wrote a one-off special entitled Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe where Frank Castle kills every superhero and supervillain in the Marvel Universe after his family are caught in the crossfire of a battle with the Brood.
The Punisher also featured in a number of more extended looks at alternative universes and lives such as the Age of Apocalypse 's Frank Castle as a man who fled genocide to become a monk.
In the alternative universe House of M , Castle appears as a media vigilante nicknamed the "Punisher" and is recruited after his arrest by John Proudstar to join and be the other human in the strikeforce known as the Brotherhood.
The Punisher: A Man Named Frank , written by Chuck Dixon , was a western themed take on the character.
Castle is a cowboy during the time of the American Old West who is out for revenge to the criminals who killed his family. In The Punisher Noir , Frank Castelione is a veteran of World War I who has a winged version of a skull tattooed on his chest.
His wife died from cancer and Castelione is killed by Jigsaw, Barracuda and the Russian after a fight.
His only son is the Punisher, patterning himself after a radio pulp series. This version of Punisher wears a mask emblazoned with his trademark skull similar to Crossbones which is later carved into his chest by Jigsaw.
The Punisher fights against a criminal conspiracy controlling the entire city, and kills Barracuda by ripping him in half.
In this universe, Frank takes advantage of the fact that the heroes and law enforcement officers are busy with zombies and he hunts and shoots down the super-villain leadership of New York City, known as the Kingpin , The Owl , and Hammerhead.
Along the way he allies himself with Ash Williams , who he intends to help battle the zombie threat. When Ash sees him kill the still human criminal trio he becomes disgusted and mistakenly abandons the Punisher minutes later.
This leaves Frank to be attacked and infected by a squad of zombies, causing him to at first be "killed". Frank returns as a zombie and turns Ash's ally, the Scarlet Witch into one.
Punisher appears in Marvel Zombies: Evil Evolution , where he appears zombified along with other zombies attacking the Marvel Apes.
In the alternative universe Marvel Mangaverse continuity, Sosumi Brown is Tokyo 's Punisher, who fights the crime family of Skang Kee Ho.
That family uses an Oni Japanese demon named Oni Yew to try to stop her, but her sister, Hashi Brown, finds out about her secret.
In the process, she obtains a cursed weapon which she uses to slay the Oni and save her sister. In the alternative-future universe of MC2 , the Punisher is still active, but has moved to South America to deal with the level of drug runners there.
He returns to New York after hearing of a gang war between Black Tarantula and a Maggia don called Silverback, whom he had once crippled, but now has cybernetic implants.
In the possible future timeline depicted in the " Old Man Logan " storyline, Punisher shows up to help fight the villains during the days the villains rose to power.
He shot Electro before he was stabbed in the chest during a sneak attack from Kraven the Hunter. In addition, Punisher is shown to have a failing memory as the Punishers have stolen his war journal.
This caused Punisher to assist Old Man Logan into attacking the stronghold of the Punishers to save the kidnapped children.
He fought the Punishers' leader Panhead where he was fatally injured. When Panhead is killed, Punisher reclaimed his war journal and sees the picture of his late family as he dies peacefully.
Later in this alternative future series, two men who have taken up the mantles of the Punisher and Daredevil, have been captured by a new Kingpin after trying to destroy his empire along with Spider-Girl.
The Punisher and Daredevil are chained to posts in a full view of a crowd at a stadium, as they are gruesomely dispatched by dinosaurs.
Following his interview with Rick Jones at his apartment in Chicago , Phil Sheldon trips over the corpse of the Punisher in the snowfall. On Earth-TRN, Frank Castle led a war on crime for years, until the Kingpin organized the crime families of New York against him, Frank found himself hunted by the criminal underworld.
Growing desperate, Frank made a deal with the Venom Symbiote, the symbiote would allow him to kill Fisk and 'win' his war on crime, on the condition that Frank would kill one target for the symbiote.
This target was revealed to be Spider-Man, an innocent, and Frank tried to resist the symbiote as it formed a rifle in his hands.
Fortunately for Frank, a Venomized Doctor Strange chose that moment to transport them into a war between Venoms and Poisons, inadvertently saving Spider-Man's life.
He was unfortunately assimilated by a Poison along with his symbiote, thus creating Poison Punisher. Later he was present in the Hive's invasion of the Prime Marvel Universe and was able to bond Spider-Man to a symbiote.
In the alternate reality of Earth-TRN, where Thanos conquered all the Universe, Frank Castle's early life was seemingly similar to that of the Frank Castle of the Earth Universe.
However, when Thanos came to Earth, the Punisher was one of the last casualties during the last stand of the heroes and his soul was subsequently sent to Hell.
Willing to give anything in order to punish Thanos for slaughtering his planet, the Punisher signed a demonic deal with Mephisto and became the Ghost Rider.
When he returned to Earth, however, Thanos was already gone and everything on the planet was dead. Roaming endlessly and undying with no one to kill or love, the Ghost Rider spent the next countless years alone.
He eventually began to lose his mind when even Mephisto fell silent to his calls. When a badly injured Galactus arrived on Earth seeking help against Thanos, unaware that the population of Earth had already been killed by him, the Ghost Rider offered the dead planet to him in exchange for the chance of punishing the Mad Titan as his herald which the Great Devourer accepted.
Bestowed with the Power Cosmic, Ghost Rider became Cosmic Ghost Rider. The alternative universe Ultimate Marvel version of Punisher is Frank Castle, an ex- NYPD police officer whose family was killed by corrupt police officers who knew he was going to expose them.
He manages to kill the one responsible for his family's death after sympathetic cops "accidentally" place him as the man's cellmate. He is saved from the death penalty by Nick Fury orchestrating his release from custody in exchange for joining the Avengers.
After being equipped with a Captain America-inspired costume, he is implanted with a chip that delivers a violent electric shock whenever he disobeys orders.
Being knocked out by Hawkeye , it allowed him to escape after the fight between the two Ghost Riders. In Ultimate Avengers vs New Ultimates , he was incarcerated after assassinating the Russian criminal known as the Red Hammer and is later visited by Fury persuading him to rejoin the Avengers by offering him revenge on his fellow prisoners.
However, Spider-Man swung in and took the hit from the Punisher's bullet instead. Horrified that he had shot a kid, he begged the S. They confronted the new S.
Director Gregory Stark , but are easily defeated thanks to Stark's Nanite-based suit. The Avengers later assisted the New Ultimates against Stark's Spider in Korea.
In the X-Men crossover Age of X , another universe's General Frank Castle commands a mutant -hunting version of the Avengers.
In this alternative universe, an unknown pathogen transforms the entire metahuman population, as well as basic civilians, into homicidal cannibals.
Five years prior, the Punisher raided a Mafia deal in a warehouse, incidentally releasing the plague.
Due to being overly exposed to the pathogen, he has gained a special immunity from the virus. He is one of the few people immune to the pathogen, the others being Hawkeye and Wolverine.
During the beginning days of the outbreak, Wolverine sought out Frank after getting a tip from Reed Richards that someone with Frank's M.
When confronted, Frank recounted the events which occurred eighteen months prior to when the virus was released, revealing that all it did was make him sick for a few weeks.
Richards, overhearing their conversation via radio, determines that Frank over exposure to the pathogen has given him a special immunity and that he is humanity's best chance at getting a cure.
After fighting to the Baxter Building, both men find that the buildings emergency generator has stopped working and the security team slaughtered.
Upon further investigation, they find Reed badly injured, who tells them that both the Thing and Beast had turned with the latter feasting upon Hank Pym.
Later, following a failed counterattack against a large cannibal army led by an infected Hulk, the Punisher, Deadpool, and Captain America save a badly injured Wolverine, who lost his arm in the battle.
The four later coordinate two diversions while Mr. Fantastic and Black Panther lead a convoy of scientists out of the city so they could begin work on a cure in a safe location.
Frank and Captain America launch an offensive against a large cannibal horde, though Captain America begins to succumb to the plague and begs Frank to kill him before he turns.
A solemn Frank obliges and is soon confronted by Hawkeye, who witnessed the execution. Weeks later, Frank continues to fight the horde alongside other uninfected heroes.
He is one of few heroes who do not accept Dr. Doom's offer of wearing a Doom Stone to prevent the infection. Frank, Hawkeye, and Black Widow end up being the last uninfected heroes in New York after the surviving heroes are forcibly turned by Doctor Doom using Doom Stones to accelerate the turning process.
Though they attempt to save their fellow heroes, their attempts are in vain and Black Widow is kidnapped by Spider-Man, while Frank leaves Hawkeye and goes out in search of him.
Frank later witnesses Hawkeye's murder at the hands of Thor, leaving him as the last uninfected person in New York. Five years later, the Punisher hunts for the first known infected, Spider-Man in a New York City that has been depopulated.
Castle is constantly bugged by a cannibalistic Deadpool, who he has killed over 35 times. While out on patrol, Frank encounters an elderly priest and a young boy who have been surviving in the ruins of New York.
While the Priest attempts to appeal to Franks humanity in hopes that the infected can be saved, Frank coldly tells him that the only way to win is to kill them all.
They are soon confronted by Spider-Man, who offers Frank and the remaining human survivors safe passage out of the city in exchange for returning his mate to him from Kingpin.
The Punisher rescued a pregnant Mary Jane Parker from the hands of a flesh-eating Kingpin and his cohorts.
At the end, Mary Jane looks on aghast as Castle kills Spider-Man and sends off the survivors. Punisher stays behind on Manhattan to continue his hunt for cannibals.
In this alternate universe, Captain Frank Castle of the NYPD is called in to take over for George Stacy in the hunt for Spider-Woman.
He was a veteran of the wars in Afghanistan and the Second Gulf War, where he and Maria Walls were the only survivors of a massive firefight.
The two later marry and have 2 children. He then worked as a mercenary for Tony Stark's private military company, WAR MACHINE.
After that stint, he joins the NYPD, rapidly rising through the ranks. On the day he was named to take over the Spider-Woman case, he finds a note that Maria and the children have left him, and Frank finds himself now only focusing on his job.
After following the Vulture on an attack on George Stacy, Castle takes on both the Vulture and Spider-Woman, the latter of whom brutally beats Castle, though Castle does see her unmasked face, he is unaware of her actual identity.
